About Sabine Veenendaal

Together with my husband and our 2 kids, we live on the countryside of Amsterdam. My husband (architect) and I (filmproducer) found this beautiful spot a few years ago by accident. Since we have been living here, we rebuilt some parts of this charm old farm. In our weekends and evenings we enjoy the fresh nature that surrounds us, as often as we can. We both work in and around Amsterdam, the city that is very easy to reach. It's only 20 minutes driving to the centre! The stable which we have rebuilt in the first place is modern, complete and in the middle of the green environment. Families and children are very welcome, as well as businesspeople that need a nice place to stay over. At our spot it doesn't matter who you are, or what you do. Just enjoy and relax, just like we do!

Sabine Veenendaal purchased this barn in 2013

Why Sabine Veenendaal chose Amsterdam area

We used to live in Amsterdam for a long time. We rebuilt a few appartments and houses on our own and one day we talked about our dream: living on the countryside when the children would be grown up. At the same time we were asking ourselves: Why wouldn't we move to the country side now. Just now when our children are little so they can enjoy the space and nature as much as they want. One evening on the internet and we found this old farm on this beautiful location. The day we saw it for real, we were completely convinced and the step from city to countryside was made!

What makes this barn unique

This place is only 15 km from Amsterdam. The city is really easy to reach by car. Or you can park your car at the train station in Abcoude (6 km) or at the metro station. Also possible is to park your car in the village (3 km), where you can take the bus and metro to the centre.

But to enjoy nature this area offers you also a lot. You can bike, hike, swim, rollerskate, sometimes ice skating, or just hang around and listen to the frogs. The place is suitable for families with kids of just for one or two persons. Perfect combination of getting new energy by nature and rest or by the dynamic Amsterdam city activities!

An exquisite location in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

The place is amazing, not only beautiful but well equipped and comfortable . Sabine was a very attentive and helpful hostess. She was so kind to offer sending a package we left behind to our next destination in Europe. We highly recommend you stay here. We simply loved it. Our only regret is we didn't spend more days.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

It is amazing that so close to Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport, you can find yourself looking out over green fields, narrow dikes and winding creeks. The house is wonderful, done with great taste and everything is very comfortable. The old farm yard in which it sits is a bit of a mess, but once you are at the cottage, all is clean and the views are unobstructed. If you are looking for a central location in the Netherlands from which to explore Amsterdam and other places, but you like the quiet of the countryside rather than staying in town, then this is a great choice.

ITA

Bellissima casa indipendente situata a 10-15 minuti da Amsterdam, immersa nel verde e vicino ai canali.

Il posto è magnifico, la casa ha tutto quello che serve e possiede una veranda stupenda.

La proprietaria è molto disponibile.

LA CASA È PRIVA DI BARRIERE ARCHITETTONICHE, e quindi usufruibile in carrozzina.

Molto consigliata specialmente alle persone che non vogliono rinunciare alla tranquillitá pur essendo molto vicina ad Amsterdam.

ENG

Worderful Independent house at 10-15 min from Amsterdam, sorrounded by green and canals.

The house is completely furnished

The owner is really kind.

THERE ARE NOT ARCHITECTURAL BARRIERS, so it's completely wheelchair-friendly.
